I think the HD201's are more comfortable from my limited testing but comfort is subjective. I can listen to my HD201's for hours while my HD212's get sweaty and uncomfortable after about 45minutes

Are there any good alternatives to the zalman mic (that clip on in a similar fashion)? They're excruciatingly difficult to find in the UK.

Wow you're right. Hard to find.

If you want those crappy 5.1 headphones. It's that or buy from america and pay that much once you add shipping.

If you want to win an auction in 3 days.

I'm pming you a link to one in the u.k. It says there's one in stock, so who knows if you'll be able to snag it.

Thanks for the PM (+rep). Unfortunately I require more than one and auctions/bundles are out of the question, I was hoping there would be equally good alternatives.

Nice guide, just gave it a look-over.

I currently have a pair of Beyerdynamic DT770-250s. Downright awesome, and worth every penny I paid (23,400 pennies at that ). I used to have a pair of Sennheiser HD555s, but they stopped working on me one day . I would have went with a pair of Denon D2000s but I could not for the life of me find a website with them in stock and a reasonable price.

Great guide though.

the denon's have never been on the cheaper side, or readily available,
your best bet if you ever want to pick em up is to cruise over to head-fi.org and post a WTB thread there :]

I am living in a dorm and cant have loud headphones, and I like some decent bass. Whats better, the AD700's or the A700's. Also, what are the ups and downs of them

You'd probably be wanting the A700s. It's closed so less noise leaks out and bass is stronger.

Plantronics Audio Switcher is gotta be the best $10 I have ever spent on my computer. I had one for years, works great... Esp when you live with your GF/WIFE... -_-
